Canon PowerShot G1 X compact camera announced

Offering professional level shots for the price and size of a compact snapper, Canon has officially unveiled the G1 X at CES 2012 with a 14.3MP sensor

 

Canon has introduced the latest model in its acclaimed G-Series, compressing professional-level, DSLR quality snaps into a sleekly design, easily portable compact camera.
 
Redefining everything we have come to expect from a compact camera, Canon has introduced its new Powershot G1 X, capable of producing DSLR quality images in an unimposing metal body.
 
Offering an array of high-end specs at a reasonable price, the G1 X combines a large CMOS sensor with an Intelligent Image Stabiliser to bring a level of HD image only previously available with the company’s collection of DSLR cameras.
 
Canon PowerShot G1 X Specs

 
Boasting professional image quality, the PowerShot G1 X is Canon’s first compact to feature a large 4:3 aspect, 14.3 Megapixel CMOS sensor measuring 18.7mm x 14mm, allowing for the output of large-sized prints.
 
Offering maximum control over the image, The G1 X offers full manual control as well as a 4x optical zoom range of 28mm – 112mm, which neatly retracts back into the robust, 7.5cm camera body.
 
Canon’s inbuilt Optical Image Stabiliser (IS) is also supported by an Intelligent IS that takes a broad range of factors into account, such as focal distance and movement, when shooting.
 
Canon Powershot G1 X Release Date and Price

 
Despite being outed at CES 2012, Canon’s latest premium compact snapper is still a few weeks from launch with a PowerShot G1 X release date set for late February, with a release price of £699.
